Between history and modernity

Written by 

Amber has been inspired from the earliest times. In the Paleolithic he was used to create all kinds of ornaments, including amulets and artifacts. In the ancient world, he appeared in legends, local stories and during religious rites. Thanks to its charm for over 3,000 years, it is a source of jewelery inspiration,
and Poland is currently the world leader in the production of amber jewelry, which enjoys great popularity in Europe, America and Asia.

For centuries, Amber has been strongly embedded in the Polish jewelery tradition, because as much as 90% of the world's mineral deposits can be found near our borders. These are deposits of Baltic amber, which we find mainly in the Kaliningrad region (Russia), but also in the areas of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine and Poland.

The perception of amber has changed over the centuries. Initially, it was an extremely important element of ornaments and sacred art, including the cult of the dead. Over time, fashion, shape, size, and popularity of designs have changed. This has led to a change in the perception of this mineral in society. In particular, amber is stereotypically associated with old-fashioned, "grandma's" design, or a few prestigious ornaments, especially for many young people. Thinking is very wrong. Why?

Amber is a unique shape, and each of them has a different shape, shade or form. This makes it willingly used by jewelery industry artists. Combined with various, decorative or precious stones, such as turquoise, moonstone or pearls, it can be a beautiful decoration or a unique gift. All amber lumps merge well with silver, gold and other metals. All this gives a lot of opportunities for artists, and the amber jewelery buyers let you feel the owners of a unique product. It is important that the products offered, in addition to decorative functions, are also a successful capital investment.
